Scant 50 metres from my place, in the second next compound in fact, people who had been living there had put up a Barbed-wire fence. There is plenty of it around, so what they did is not too uncommon.
About 2 o’clock this afternoon, I heard our neighbour’s dog fighting another dog. Mine is a largish compound, with many open places, where stray dogs can take up dwelling, which I do not want. Anyway, I went to investigate. By then the dog fight was over, but after some time, I hear the whimperings of a dog.
I found that a Stray bitch was caught in the barbed wire. Her Udders are caught there. When I went closer to look, she snarled at me in fear and pain.
I called a few village youth, and they came and tried to release her. But as she bit them, they went off, leaving her as she is.
[India is not a country where You can phone up the Fire service or such for these matters. They would laugh at You, and even abuse You if You phone them for these things.]
I placed a little (cooked) rice that I had on a leaf near her, but I found that she did not eat that. The pain is too severe, I guess. …It is now 8:45 at night, and she is still there, still caught and still whimpering.
I doubt I shall be able to sleep much tonight. I am too Sad.
I only pray that God may her a quick release.
[Happily, there is a sequel to this. The dog is Released from the Fence. For that, please click here.]
